Week 10 Wrap

|

Just got back from muddy Wilbur Cross, where Hamden moved to 9-1 with a 10-6 victory. Darien also defeated St. Joseph 21-14 (thanks to our buddy David Liberatore for that score).

By the end of this evening, we’ll be able to give you all the playoff scenarios.

Looking back on last night’s games, they were pretty wild, especially in the SCC. But everything went according to form. Kennedy is your NVL championship participant against Ansonia, which defeated Kennedy 36-12 in the regular season.

(WHY, NVL? Why do you insist on playing 11 league games this year, denying teams like Ansonia and Seymour scheduling out of league just so everybody plays everybody, and then insist on playing a championship? You can’t have it both ways.)

Elsewhere:


Newtown survived (barely) 24-17 over Bethel to punch its ticket to the SWC title game.
Masuk survived a Pomperaug comeback bid, 35-21
Cheshire honed in on a Class LL berth by crushing Fairfield Prep, 38-6

Also: Chris Sloat went nuts, passing for 512 yards and six TDs in Bunnell’s wild, wild win over Barlow. Branford outlasted Foran and Amity outlasted Notre Dame-WH in a pair of crazy games. Read all of that (and more! here)

More later.

    Hamden in the playoffs. Wow.

  2. Joe says:

    The final score of the Law / North Haven game was 52-14. Why is everyone reporting it as 51-7? Law scored a second TD on a screen pass in the 4th quarter to make it 44-14, then North Haven scored late to make it 51-14.

  3. Boss says:

    Masuk has an open seat in States!

  4. phs says:

    watching the masuk pomperaug game, it seemed like masuk didnt have an answer for pomperaug’s number 2. he shouldve gotten the ball a lot more

  5. RAY BROWN says:

    NEWTOWN NEEDS OT TO BEAT BETHEL,POMPERAUG SCARES MASUK,SHEEHan hangs 28 on hillhouse.guess we wont be hearing from the shelton fans soon.like next year.derby beats lyman hall–how pathetic are those teams ?the scc stinks.the swc should stick to soccer.bunnell scores 70 and doesnt even come close to the 50 point rule?barlow might consider flag football next year.

  6. bigmikect says:

    speaking on the fciac,well the end of the year is almost here,been a rollercoast ride of sorts-hard to believe greenwich is still alive for a state birth,no1 predicted darien would be where they are(nor n canaan for that matter),after seing them play a few times this year,i can honestly say the only loss on norwalks sc(N
    schedule SHOULD have been the ncanaan game,ridgefield had a good season(norwalk loss killed them)st joes,decent season,no states or fciacs like some people on here thought?the bridgeport schools combined will lose around 30 games combined(central should bounce back next year),in my opinion stamford continues to have some of the best talent in the conference&the state,yet linger around .500,cortese from trinity had an awesome year,maybee if he has more help they make the dance,a 5 loss staples season?unheard of-i remember someone saying the popwarner&jayvee program at staples has been down in recent years,hope this isnt a sign of whats to come,wilton,danbury,mcmahon,westhill,frfld schools,trumbull kinda alll where i expected to be(whoever picked trumbull to win the fciacs shame on you,id take ANY of the other leagues 3 loss teams over them,mite even take a 4 loss team like stjoes over them).and finally in my opinion fciac game of the year nominations

  7. tj says:

    Just watched Ansonia-Seymour I thoroughly enjoyed it. Different offensive philosophies between them and the leading teams in the FCIAC/SWC. Talent wise and coaching on par, depth is really the only difference. And lets’ face it, no one goes fully two platoon anymore.

    What I did notice at the end of the game is the announcers talking about the two teams’ opportunities in States, no mention of the NVL championship.

    The FCIAC and SWC champioinship structure is just messed up. The FCIAC got lucky, not so with the SWC.

    It was a travesty that a regular season game in the middle of the season didn’t count for FCIAC purposes. Only happens because, as in life, administration/management don’t have a clue.

    The problem in both the FCIAC and SWC came about when they got rid of the divisions. Bring back the divsions,and have the T-Day rival teams placed in separate divisions. Not perfect, you will run into what happened with NC-Darien (by the way I am for the one game rather than back-to-back, the latter is not fair for the players/coaches) but it is much better than the SWC, where Newtown gets in without having to face Bunnell or Masuk. Not Newtown’s fault they beat everyone on their schedule, again just bonehead admins.

    Anyway,I love the league championships, to be called champions, no matter how it comes by, is a special accomplishment that should be savored.

  8. SPB says:

    Joe: That’s how the game was called into us. If it’s wrong, the coaches have to correct it (they were the ones who had it called in).

  9. Mike says:

    Ray, when it is all said and done Hillhouse will be #1 in the state and Hamden will be LL champs. And here’s hoping cosby from the great NVL can beat someone in the L. what a joke, the NVL championship why even bother playing the game. LOL Ray you shouldn’t talk that so called league you play in is a joke. I actually think the SWC is a better league.

  10. Gman says:

    Guys—-Ever since the State Football Championships came into being in the mid-seventies the FCIAC Championship game has lost its lustre. It was important to win the FCIAC back then because there was only a mythical state champion crowned by the New Haven Register. What does it really matter who wins the SWC or the NVL (do people think Ansonia lies awake at night thinking about how to win the NVL) they care about one thing and that’s winning a state championship. It’s true that the New Canaan-Darien Thanksgiving Day in addition to winning an FCIAC championship counts more importantly towards the states. The winner hosts a game against a lesser opponent and the loser plays Hillhouse. All the top teams in each of leagues are good teams and on a given day can beat anyone. Nobody remembers or cares who wins the league championship–WIN the STATES and now you can talk.

  11. Playoff pro says:

    Based on the past two weeks, i believe playoff points are crazy, because the Bunnell Buldogs score over fifty two weeks in a row, but teams like Simsberry win by one point and are still ahead of the BUlldogs, also kudos to Masuk to hangin on to that one seed. . .for now. Also, i dont see NewCannon lossing once the playoffs start.

  12. MIke Smith says:

    football state championships are a dime a dozen these days

    League championship in the FCIAC is still what counts for local bragging rights

    States means a lot more for teams that come from mediocre conferences

  13. bigmikect says:

    i agree with what mike smith said especially in the fciac,many times 2 top teams meet in the championship game that wouldnt face each other in the states or during regular season.a team like ncanaan would probably take more pride in kncking off a greenwich in the title game,rather a platt or a weaver team in the playoffs.im not saying it doesnt count for something,but some of these 1 seed vs a 3or 4 loss 4 seed matchups are a joke before they even kick off.title games help us clear up the srguements just a lil bit,and heck even tho they dont count towards states,its a better measuring stick then a scrimmage is. also by the way i dont know which is a bigger joke-kennedy playing for the nvl league title or masuk being able to state claim as the best swc team this year should they knck off newtown,and newtown beat brookfield(again). the system is screwed and i dont have a solution,but if it was agreed to start the season a week sooner,something sensible could be worked out.

  14. hamden football says:

    Mike: If you ask the players in the FCIAC if they’d rather win the FCIAC or state championship, I’m guessing most would say “both”, but if they had to choose I think most would pick having the ring.

  15. gman says:

    Dear Mike Smith,

    Must disagree with you about the FCIAC being more importanty than states. If it was they would play the game Last. When Duke won back to back National Championships in basketball they didn’t even win their league. Do you think they would rather have won their tough conference or the National Championship. Think about it and get back to me.

  16. fake Rob says:

    I agree with Mike Smith: while the rest of the state views the state championships as the overall measure of greatness, the FCIAC, as the elite conference in the state, views the FCIAC championship as what really matters.

  17. ValleyFootball26 says:

    Why does RAY BROWN hate the SCC so much?….It is the 1st or 2nd best conference in the State…

  18. jeb says:

    I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NVL SHOWDOWN BETWEEN KENNEDY AND ANSONIA. ALL OF CONNECTICUT WILL BE WATCHING THESE TWO POWERHOUSES.

  19. gman says:

    I could not disagree more with Mike Smiths assumption. In back to back years New Canaan beat Greenwich to win the Fciac Football Championship. Then they went to the states and got beat 24-0 to Darien and 56-6 to Bloomfield. Anyone who says they would prefer to win a league championship over a state championship has rocks in their head. Is it good to win a league championship? Yes. How come that Greenwich was the first team to win a league championship and a state championship in the same year since the early nineties. Cmon Mike-use your head on this one. In basketball Trinity won the Fciacs-do you really think they feel an fciac title is more important than a state title. Do you think Ansonia would rather they win the NVL or a state title? Use your head. Most Fciac coaches think that their league is the HOLY GRAIL_Win the states and they will look at things differently. Bobby Knight said that he would rather win the Big TEn conference rather tha the National Title-he’s whacked out too.

  20. RAY BROWN says:

    again the scc has 20 teams —–and the majority stink-they come up with a good team and theyre automatically worldbeaters–jeb–put the cows away hook up your horse and buggy and go watch its gotta be better than weston–immaculate game

  21. RAY BROWN says:

    MIKE-ASK BROOKFIELD,STRATFORD HOW MUCH OF A JOKE THE NVL IS.IF I CAN RECALL SACRED HEART BEAT STRATFORD YEARS BACK FOR THE SS TITLE.

  22. TOM says:

    HEY RAY BROWN, CAN’T WAIT TO SEE CROSBY-MASUK.I WANT TO SEE YOUR EXCUSE WHEN MASUK POUNDS THEM.DON’T FORGET THIS IS THE BIG BOYS NOT CLASS S OR SS.CROSBY DOESN’T GET TO PLAY TOLLAND LIKE SEYMOUR DID,OR A NEW LONDON TEAM THAT BEAT POWERHOUSE MONTVILLE BY 1.HYDE,MONTVILLE,ROCKYHILL’PLANFIELD,CROMWELL,THESE ARE THE TEAMS ANSONIA AND SEYMOUR HAVE TO PLAY FOR A STATE TITLE. REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO SEYMOUR WHEN THEY HAD TO PLAY STAPLES.THE AD’S ARE VERY SMART NOT PLAYING OUT OF NVL. DON’T YOU THINK IF THE COACHES WANTED THEY COULD GET TOGETHER WITH THE AD’S AND PLAY OUT OF CONF. YOU CAN’T TELL ME BROCKETT OR SPOONY IF THEY REALLY WANTED TO COULDN’T GET IT DONE.THEY WANT TO MAKE PLAYOFFS SO THEY WOULD RATHER PLAY MIGHTY S.HEART OR WILBY THEN A MASUK OR NEW CANEEN.

  23. Common Sense says:

    gman is 100 % CORRECT…

    The most important tournaments are held LAST. In every sport!
    Show me an FCIAC coach who would rather win an FCIAC title over a state title, and I’ll show you a coach who’s only won an FCIAC title and never a state title.
    What banner would you rather have hanging in your school’s gymnasium…”2008 State Champions” or “2007 FCIAC Champions”? It’s a no-brainer.
    People in the FCIAC think they their winner is the “county” champion. However, there are probably as many teams which are located in Fairfield County who are NOT in the FCIAC as there are teams that are located in Fairfield County which ARE in the FCIAC.
    You play for STATE titles. A league title is just an added bonus.

  24. Mike Smith says:

    did someone really just compare winning the NCAA Basektball Tournament to winning a CT state high school championship?

    this argument is unique to football, no other sport in CT…maybe lacrosse

    State football Tourny is watered down in CT…it is much easier to win a State Championship these days than it is a league championship

    This is not really debatable

    I was on a team that won fciac and state…fciac meant WAY more than states to almost everyone

  25. fake Rob says:

    This is coming from those that don’t have the luxury of playing in the highly competitive FCIAC. Talk to Mike Sangster, Lou Marinelli, Rich Albonizio. The State championship is great, it’s the cherry on top. But the FCIAC gives you more bragging rights around here.

  26. master of meaningless information says:

    From 1976, when the state championship system commenced, until the early 90′s, I think the teams in the FCIAC would have been more happy winning their conference championship than winning a state crown. Back then, the FCIAC was the best conference in the state. These days, I believe that the top couple of teams in the FCIAC, SCC, SWC, and NVL are pretty equal so a state championship might mean more if they have the opportunity to play each other. Ansonia, despite their low male enrollment, should be in LL due to their traditon of winning all of the time (I know they were in LL one year because of this fact). Instead of playing a New London or Hartford County team, they would play teams from the power conferences.

  27. Rob says:

    Tom,

    By your own logic: if Crosby is as bad as you think they are, then wouldn’t that mean that Masuk has an easy road in Class L?

  28. PBL says:

    Rob:Mausk is going to ROLL in Class L.

  29. master of meaningless information says:

    Crosby is a good team…Loads of talent… They beat a very good Ansonia team. Masuk would have an easier road with Crosby out of the picture. Note: If Newington does make the playoffs, they did beat Monroe for the State Pop Warner Championship when Masuk’s seniors were eighth graders. However, I do not know how many of the players on both teams played in that game. How’s that for meaningless information ( but it matters to me)!

  30. Holy Grail says:

    State championships are FAR more important than league champions. It’s your league! It’s not your state! It’s your league we are talking about! If the league is more important, then why is it played first?
    I am an FCIAC guy, and let me tell you, the states are more important. Years ago, before there was a state tournament, the FCIAC championship game meant everything. But now, the FCIAC title game is nothing more than an exhibition! In fact, it doesn’t even count in their records for state playoffs! If the FCIAC title game means so much, why would the league not go out of its way to showcase the game anymore? The game has been buried amongst 8 other league games on Thanksgiving morning in 3 recent years. If it meant so much, the league would have a contigency plan for these occurences, but they do not.
    Any Darien-New Canaan player or coach will tell you that the last thing they are thinking about in that game is winning the FCIAC championship. Beating their rivals, remaining unbeaten, polls, avoiding a game with Hillhouse, and getting the top seed in the Class MM tournament are far more important to these teams. Even NC quarterback Nate Quinn said it last Friday on the post=game radio interview.

  31. Rob says:

    PBL:

    I agree that Masuk is the favorite in Class L.

    My point to Tom was that he was contradicting himself. He feels the competition in Class SS and S is not as strong as the larger classes. Yet at the same time he doubts the NVL and thinks Crosby is not a good team.

    So if a “weak” team from the “weak” NVL makes the Class L playoffs, doesn’t that mean that the competition in the larger classes is not as strong as he thinks?

  32. kris1 says:

    TOM said: “DON’T YOU THINK IF THE COACHES WANTED THEY COULD GET TOGETHER WITH THE AD’S AND PLAY OUT OF CONF. YOU CAN’T TELL ME BROCKETT OR SPOONY IF THEY REALLY WANTED TO COULDN’T GET IT DONE.”

    No they can’t, they tried. Both petitioned for OCC games and were denied. But, to say the AD’s were smart for not allowing it was just stupid. It has nothing to do with the leagues ability to compete, it has to do with school budgets. And what does Staples beating Seymour in 2002 have to do with 2008? If you make it to the playoffs enough times, at some point your going to get beat. However, if you want to go down that road, Ansonia has beating teams from EVERY conference in the state. They are the ONLY school in CT to have accomplished that. The NVL also has the highest winning percentage (.627), of all conferences, in State Championship Finals. Furthermore, the NVL has 12 members schools, 7 have won State Titles. Do the math? Before you make a ridiculous statement, take the time to do some research. You make yourself look stupid.

  33. gman says:

    Dear Mike Smith and FAke Rob,
    On Thanksgiving Day New CAnaan and Darien are playing for the FCIAC Championship. A week later they might be playing each other for the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. If you had to win one of those games according to your theory you would rather win the county instead of the state. Cmon guys-your not making any sense-Talk about bragging rights. If you win the counties and I win the states who has the bragging rights. Somewhere along the way you have been brainwashed into thinking the only thing that matters is the FCIAC.

  34. jeb says:

    LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT!!! SOMEONE WOULD RATHER WIN THEIR LEAGUE THAN A STATE TITLE. BELLVUE HOSPITAL HAS SOME EMPTY BEDS AVAILABLE.

  35. TOM says:

    MY POINT IS THAT CROSBY PLAYING IN THE NVL EVEN AS A AVERAGE TEAM COULD GO 9 AND 2.WHEN TEAMS IN SCC,SWCAND FCIAC HAVE TO PLAY A MUCH MORE DIFFICULT SCH.PUT CROSBY IN THESE LEAGUES AND THEY WOULDN’T QUALIFY.

  36. Mike Smith says:

    The scenario in which New Canaan and Daien play is meaningless…the team that wins last feels best

    Going to states and beating a team in thh semis that is not as good as half the teams you played during the season might be one reason the state crown feels unimportant

    However, I’ll humor the Darien/NC comments…If Darien beat NC on Thanksgiving, then NC went on to win the states without playing Darien in the State round, I gaurentee you the Nc Rams would be pissed that they never got to beat Darien…and, yes, the state championship would be nice but still very scared…they lost local bragging rights

    Again, maybe it’s different now…but we played in front of 9,000 for the FCIAC championship and everyone we played during the season had to sit at Boyle and watch…We played in front of 2500 for the state championship…for a title that did not feel half as important as the county championship we won

  37. justafan says:

    FCIAC Title versus State Title:

    I know it may sound unimaginable to some folks (especially those more familiar with other state leagues), but I am absolutely certain that to teams in the FCIAC, that league title is more valuable than a state title. They’re proud of their league and the competition it offers, and while no one would downplay the thrill of gaining a state title, FCIAC’s are the pinnacle.

  38. Voice of Reason says:

    If you win a state title you get a championship ring. If you win a league title game your get the privilege of saying you were the best in your league.

    Bottom line:Which one would you rather show your family/friends?

    SHOW ME THE RING!

  39. Remmy says:

    Tom, what does that matter when NVL teams are winning states? Stop being rediculous, man.

    Crosby could go 10-0 in the NVL and you can keep calling the NVL “weak”, but as long as they do something in the states…that’s all I care about.

    Sure, Ansonia has been undefeated the past few years. As a result, most people call the NVL “weak”, but teams like Ansonia back it up year after year. Remember how many people were on New London’s jock last year before the championship game got underway? How’d that work out for you guys?

    I’m hoping Crosby (if they get in) does something with this opportunity in the states. Hopefully Seymour gets a quality win. Same goes for the Chargers. The Chargers have the chance to go all the way, though, whereas I don’t see Seymour or Crosby winning-out – although I want them to.

  40. RAY BROWN says:

    TOM——SEYMOUR LOST ONE GAME TO ANSONIA AND THEYRE STILL RANKED AHEAD OF NEWTOWN AND BROOKFIELD-THAT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE SWC SOCCER LEAGUE?

  41. johnny ribbs says:

    I think there is some validity to the FCIAC guys arguments, as Fairfield County really is a different place than the rest of CT. They don’t watch our Hartford News, they really are more of a suburb of NYC than part of New England. So I sortive believe them when they say FCIAC championship is more important than taking out Southington or Bloomfield or New London in a state game. I also think that secretly they are just plain jealous of the year in and out success of some non FCIAC teams, so this is their defense mechanism!

  42. jeb says:

    BULLETIN ONLY A FEW MORE DAYS UNTIL KENNEDY-ANSONIA FOR NVL CHAMPIONSHIP. GET THERE EARLY,THEY EXPECT A CROWD OF 200.

  43. zeke says:

    Most players would rather win a state championship rather than the league. To each its own. Ansonia for one would rather win the states.

  44. justafan says:

    FCIAC fans jealous of non-FCIAC teams and whatever success they have elsewhere? Trust me, they don’t give it a second thought, unless they meet an upstate team in states (and usually beat them, truth be told).

  45. Cats 1 says:

    The NVL title game was played last Thursday.

    Ansonia beat Seymour.

  46. gman says:

    Mike Smith your rationale is all wrong-New canaan has won more hockey championships than any school playing great competition yet they have one only one state title-do you reall y think they would rather win the fciac hockey, football, baseball tennis ect than the state championship. I think your trying to get us fans upset with your logic-but I respect your opinion though I don’t agree with you.

  47. fake Rob says:

    First of all, who cares about a physical ring? In 20 years are you still going to be wearing your ring? What you’ll have are the memories and the ability to say “We won.” You’re not going to be wearing your ring out to bars trying to pick up girls (unless you’re Voice of Reason).

    The only comparison I can think of is the 2003 ALCS. The Yanks beat the Red Sox in the Aaron Boone game, and yeah, the Marlins defeated them in the WS, but what people remember more about that year was the rivalry and the 7 game series between the Yanks and Sox. If Darien beats NC and then NC beats another team for the State Title, I guarantee you NC will remember losing to Darien over winning the state championship. NC/Darien is more important to the players than a meaningless upstate team.

  48. gman says:

    Fake Rob-You are dead wrong a usual. It’s not what people remember it’s whats important. Winning the world series is more important than winning your league championship. ARE you being serious are just trying to stir up some controversy. Ask the Marlins or the Yankee fans if the Red Sox series was more important.

  49. Josh Beckett says:

    I agree with gman….

    You’re telling me that New Canaan would rather beat Darien on Thanksgiving and lose to a Hillhouse in the state championship game? That’s ridiculous.
    Mike Smith, the FCIAC championship is NOT the “county” championship. Think of all the good programs in Fairfield County that are not in the FCIAC: Prep, Bunnell, Masuk, Shelton, etc…
    I know that the Marinelli’s and Albonizio’s would rather hang a state banner than a league banner. How many people from the outside world even know what the FCIAC is? I don’t see a Greenwich coach smashing a runner-up trophy after losing to New Canaan at Boyle. But against West Haven for a Class LL championship game? Yes!

  50. Voice of Reason says:

    The point was that winning states is important enough to get a ring. The league title doesnt compare, thats why you get nothing!

  51. Mike Smith says:

    again, I don’t think this is an issue in any other sport in the FCIAC

    so the hockey argument is out the window

    Ray, not quite sure jealousy is at the center of this either…the FCIAC has pretty good attendance in the state tourny

    is it really about a ring? I don’t think my state title ring has seen the light of day since the day i got it (that’s almost as bad as a high school class ring)

    it’s about bragging rights with guys you end up at college with and you work with later in life…i guess i just happen to run into more folks from Norwalk, Darien, Fairfield, Wilton than I do Norwich, Putnam, Simsbury, Cheshire

  52. Voice of Reason says:

    The ring is never worn, thats not my point. It is that the state title is clearly more important, thats why you get a ring. For anyone to think that you would actually wear your championship ring for more than a day, if ever is just silly.
    I still want a system that allows us the ability to crown one true state champ. And as you all know, Fairfield County dominates high school football, always has, always will.

  53. gman says:

    Mike-it has nothing to do with the ring. It’s the tittle STATE CHAMPS. Bragging rights mean nothing as you get older.

  54. RAY BROWN says:

    voice—————-can u name the last fciac team to win the state title?

  55. gman says:

    RAY-The last Fciac team that won a state title was New Canaan the past two years in the MM and Greenwich in the LL over Shelton last year also.

  56. SWC says:

    REMMY MY POINT IS ANSONIA AND SEYMOUR WILL DO FINE IN S AND SS BUT PUT THEM IN LL OR L AND THEY WOULD STRUGGLE ASK SEYMOUR ABOUT STAPLES.ANSONIA HAS TO BEAT WHO FOR A STATE TITLE CROMWELL PLEASE. AS FAR S NEW LONDON MOST OVERRADED TEAM IN STATE CHECK MONTVILLE SCORE.AS FAR AS RAYS POINT ABOUT SEYMOUR BEING RANKED HIGHER THEN BROOKFIEID AND NEWTOWN,ITS THE SAME GENIUSES THAT HAD ANSONIA AS 1 A TEAM THAT LOST TO NEVER RANKED CROSBY.BY THE WAY NEWTOWN BEAT SEYMOUR GOOD IN SCRIMAGE DOES THAT COUNT.

  57. RAY BROWN says:

    im talking about THEtitle -not some watered down class title.

  58. gman says:

    Ray-The state title voted on by the coaches or sportswriters is all subjective. That issue is never decided on the field. Strength of schedule is never brought into the equasion. This year there are many teams who can be declared the state title holder. It really doesn’t matter who is voted #1 in the state because it has no merit.

  59. Cats 1 says:

    SWC: go double check the teams that are going to make the playoffs in Class LL and L this year

    they are not that impressive

    that is not the case every single year, but this year that crew is not striking fear in anybody

  60. RAY BROWN says:

    you mean whoopee were mm champs has merit?

  61. Dino says:

    I vote that SWC be given the cold shoulder technique until he learns how to use proper grammar and punctuation. He says so many idiotic things that get me fired up, then I calm down when I count backwards from 3 like Uncle Phil from the Fresh Prince and tell myself “He is illiterate.” Crosby would also be 8-2 in the SWC. They are Bunnell, but not as one dimensional.

  62. swc says:

    I vote Dino the dog are official english teacher.Your mad cause your the kind of dork I used to beat up.

  63. Dave k says:

    ray
    when you say watered down title are you referring to class S or SS where the NVL shines?
    does that mean AHS has 16 watered down titles?

  64. Rob says:

    hahaha

    is that a serious comment?

    that is awesome!

  65. Dino says:

    I’ll give your previous post a D+. Although your two sentences were riddled with grammatical mistakes, you succeeded in getting your point across. Here’s what you meant to write.

    I vote Dino the Dog (if it is a proper noun, they must both be capitalized) OUR official English (this is capitalized, as well)teacher. You’re (contraction combining the two words you and are) mad BEcause you’re (see previous correction)the kind of dork I used to beat up.

    Apparently SWC schools suck at both football and education.
